I think I want to take my son to the zoo for the first time after I get my trial!!

Okay a co worker told me about an herb called Kratom. Many people use it to get through opiate withdrawals. I read a few different posts and forums online about using this for pain management as well. Has anyone heard of this or tried it? While researching it I came across a medicine called Proglumide. It used to be used in medicines for stomach ulcers b...

Hi, I have chronic back pain from bulging discs and DDD. I have been on Norco's for the last year. My new pain management doctor suggested Opana ER. He told me that in the 7 years of him prescribing the medication he has not had a single patient become addicted to the medicine like patients do on Norco's and other pain meds. The norcos have start...

I was reading up on symptoms of Diabetes this morning and it hit me right in the face. All of my symptoms are related to diabetes.

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to give an update on my pain issues. Since I wrote this post I was seen by a surgeon who told me I don't need surgery and that he wanted me to try a neurostimulation device. He told me that they would do a week trial and insert leads in my lower back to see if it would even do any good and if it did I would have it implanted...

I just wanted to comment and let you know that I really hope you can find something that will help you. I don't have any advice because I don't know much about your condition but I have been on Vicoden for a year now and I cannot find a doctor to help me out at all! I want off of the pain pills because it makes me depressed, angry at times and i...
